Comments about Trophy Elementary Recorder Method:

I use it in a college Music for Children class to help future classroom teachers experience the learner's perspective and to present an example of sequence, clarity, and repertoire selection. It's quite traditional in structure with plenty of exercise. It is very good at introducing notes gradually in an appropriate sequence and providing practice material for reinforcing common patterns using the notes learned. It moves smoothly from the very basics to duets, common accidentals,, and even a trio.

It is also very economical, with big notes and generally clear layout (sometimes a bit congested). It's not fancy, but I'm fine with that--I prefer elegant simplicity.

I think the biggest issue is the need for tunes that are more familiar. There is a good selection of traditional American folk tunes and many exercises that are pedagogical purposeful but not terribly interesting. I'd like to see more familiar tunes with rhythmic features that are a bit more catchy but not tricky; more eighth notes, for example, compensating for complexity with lots of repeated notes ("Little Tom TInker" comes to mind), as well as more cross-cultural tunes (French, African, Latin, Chinese, African-American).

Still, I think it's hard to beat for functionality, economy, clarity, and essential pedagogy with good sequence and useful musical material.
